Celebrities — they’re just like us! In recent years, rescue dogs have been getting the attention they deserve and celebrities are in on the action. The great thing about celebrities adopting dogs is these mutts will get the love and attention they deserve.

Kudos to Lady Gaga for adopting a dog that truly needed to be adopted! She sets a good example about standing up for what you believe in.
Although Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez adopted Baylor as a couple, they’ve long since gone on their separate ways. Selena Gomez got to keep Baylor, a mixed breed husky, who’s making waves on social media. Selena confessed that “Baylor wasn’t meant for me- I was going to give her to my nana as a gift,” the singer said. “But I ended up falling in love with him, so I had to keep him.”
Funnily enough, Justin confessed that Baylor doesn’t really like him that much. A premonition of things to come, perhaps?

Aside from being gorgeous, Meghan Markle has a heart of gold. She’s the owner of two rescued dogs and this probably endeared him more to her rumored boyfriend, no other than Prince Harry, currently the most eligible bachelor in Europe. The actress was quoted as saying:
“Bogs is about three years old now and I started to see that he loves the company of people, but just like I love the company of dogs, I don’t want to be around solely dogs all day long so I realised he might like to have a companion.
“Guy is a Beagle and 17 pounds. He’s probably about 4- or 5-years-old based on his teeth. They are thick as thieves those two.”
